The Streets of San Antone

May 6, 2013

Travel, Urbanism

I made a quick trip to San Antonio over the weekend for a professional conference. After the sessions were over, I had a couple of hours to spare before an after-conference dinner. I’ve been to the city many times and have been long familiar with the tourist-centered part of the famed San Antonio River Walk that winds through downtown. This time, however, I went in the opposite direction, down the river walk past the Nueces Street Dam that helps keep the river at a constant depth.

I made my way through the stately King William neighborhood, past a former U.S. Armory that now serves as the headquarters of H-E-B grocery store chain, through an older industrial area-turned-burgeoning arts enclave and nearly to one of the Holy Grails of Texas, the old Lone Star Brewery. Here are a few shots I took along the way.
